How important is Supply Chain to modern business?
If you conceptualize Supply Chain as an actual chain that has many links, that will give you some insight into the importance of Supply Chain. There are so many links that need to be addressed and satisfied to make the chain work that an entire book could be written about this subject.
Implementing a PUSH / PULL process with an Enterprise Data Grid will help to shore up all of the links of the Supply Chain and deliver your product to market and ensure a just-in-time process with your suppliers. There are so many variables to this process including data entry and transfer of inventory.
With businesses now using computers and the internet to keep track of supplies and suppliers, Supply Chain is a lot easier to maintain and flourish now than it used to be. In today’s world, businesses should take full advantage of the technologies offered to them and use them to take their business to the next level.
